“The country road narrows towards the end of the peninsula, trees disappear, and as we curve around the last bend, the lighthouse comes into view, a tall yellow-and -black striped tower watching over the sea…”
These are the words of the travel writer Yvonne Gordon in last weekend’s The Guardian. She describes a visit and overnight stay in one of our beautiful cottages at St John’s Point Lighthouse, Co. Down.
“In our cosy two-bedroom house under the lighthouse tower there’s plenty of maritime paraphernalia – on windowsills there are lighthouse books, plus binoculars, an old sextant and a barometer. The house is bright and simply furnished, with sea-green doors and other features keeping to the nautical feel.”
